Session from the ESMO 2014 Congress
A Janssen-sponsored satellite symposium entitled 'Navigating the evolving treatment landscape in metastatic CRPC' was included as part of the ESMO 2014 Congress in Madrid, Spain.
- Welcome and introduction
- Targeting the androgen axis in prostate cancer
- Selecting optimal first-line treatment for metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC)
- Panel discussion: When to start treatment in mCRPC
- Sequencing considerations
- Panel discussion: How does biology drive the appropriate sequencing of therapy?
- Interpreting clinical trial data for daily clinical practice
- Summary and close
The educational objectives were that at the end of the session participants should be able to:
- Discuss treatment options for patients with metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer
- Identify strategies for the practical management of patients with advanced prostate cancer
In an era which has brought many advances in the treatment of metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer there are new challenges in determining optimal first-line and subsequent therapies. Therefore, in this symposium, the co-chairs Joan Carles (Spain) and Cora Sternberg (Italy) together with Gert Attard (UK), Eleni Efstathiou (Greece) and Maria De Santis (Austria) discussed how a critical assessment of the available data can help ensure that only relevant developments are applied in daily clinical practice.
